Go nuts with this Superfood Smoothie!
Superfoods i.e. foods with the miraculous powers of healing are the best ways to pamper your body with wholesome nutrition as well as powerful detox, that become essential in this age of contaminated food and unhealthy lifestyle.
Superfood Spirulina is already a rage among the metropolitan crowd ranging from health conscious homemakers to fitness freaks, mainly because of its commendable nutritional quotient which includes amino acids, essential B vitamins, iron, calcium and omega 6 fatty acids. The real challenge, however, is to get past the mental block regarding edible algae and find efficient and delicious ways to incorporate Spirulina in your daily diet.
Spirulina powder can be included in anything from your daily salad dressing to cheesy dips to increase its nutritional content. However, making a Spirulina empowered recipe which exactly suits your palette can be a little tricky. Smoothies with the inherent goodness of fresh fruits and vegetables can be one of the most convenient and easiest ways to include the benefits of superfood Spirulina effectively in your diet.
Nutty Spirulina Detox Smoothie
What you need:
Almond milk 1 cup
Banana 1 (chopped)
Spirulina powder 1 teaspoon
Chia seeds 1 teaspoon
Mint leaves 2 or 3
Put all the ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve after garnishing with Chia seeds and a sprig of mint on top.
When Spirulina is combined with almond milk, which is rich in essential minerals like calcium, and vitamins like B and E (with antioxidant properties), besides omega fatty acids and fibre, a smoothie is born that not only contains a ton of health benefits but also compensates for all the possible nutritional gaps in a vegan or vegetarian diet. It is equally suited to the diet of a lactose intolerant person struggling to meet his daily nutrient requirement.
The smooth silky texture of the almond milk coupled with its nutty taste and the sweetness of the bananas, counterbalances the slightly herb-like taste of Spirulina in this beautiful mint green smoothie. The mint leaves on top provide the smoothie with freshness in taste as well as presentation.
